Foreword by Luigi Labruna
Afterword by Bruno Montanari
“Politics” has left an ideological legacy consisting of the three models — “democracy”, “republic”, “empire” — in which the experience of government in the ancient world was articulated and of which Athens and Rome were still the best locations today observable and most relevant. The author proposes a reflection on the respective material and cultural foundations, identifying their logic and contextual conditioning.
